'm lynn berry. after the third debate between president obama and republican nominee mitt romney, there are just 14 days left before american voters choose their next president. according to a cbs news instant polls on uncommitted voters, president obama was a clear two to one victor with 53% saying he won. governor romney got 23%. 24% called it a tie. a cnn orc national poll called it closer with 48% saying obama won while 40% picked obama. for more we go to nbc's steve handlesman who's in florida for us. steve, good morning. >> reporter: hi, lynn. thanks. good morning from boca raton, florida. the debate here last night was clearly the most combative so far. though surprising to some, not on the issue of libya. mitt romney was able to make his larger point, his claim that america is weaker now overseas than it was four years ago. mitt romney and barack obama came to their third and final debate tied in national polls, but their tv audience seemed sure to be smaller. baseball's national league playoffs and monday night viewers got viewers who missed the face-off on muslim extrem
to dayton, ohio. vice president biden will meet him there. mitt romney will campaign out west. he'll join mitt romney in colorado. the republican candidates will also visit nevada today. both candidates are hoping last night's third and final debate gives them a boost going forward. president obama criticized mitt romney's foreign policy views and called them outdated. he used his stance on russia as an example. >> a few months ago when you were asked the biggest geopolitical threat facing america is russia. not al qaeda, middle east. call the 1980s and ask for their foreign policy because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> and mitt romney countered saying the president has made this country weaker with his policy. >> and i call it an apology tour going to the middle east and criticizing america. i think they saw that as weakness. then when there were dissidents in the streets of tehran, a green revolution, holding signs saying, is america with us? the president was silent. i think they noticed that as well. >> romney also claims iran is four years closer to having a nuclear weap
from women in both the romney and obama camps. there is one thing the obama and romney campaigns can agree on. women are a key to victory. until last week's debate, the gender gap strongly favored president obama. he had a double digit lead with women. now as the poll are tightening, the advantage has begun to disappear. one reason both sides are trying to energize their female supporters by turning to the candidates' spouses. ann romney was in rif mond yesterday. this is the first lady's second time in virginia in a month. >> i think she he will braces those values that women embrace and care about. and i think she definitely fires the women up. >> reporter: obama supporters waiting in line before the event say they trust the president to preserve their rights. >> equal pay for equal work. >> i have a daughter. it took a long time for women to gain what we have as far as rights. and it would be taking a giant step backward to vote in romney. i mean, he is against the right for a woman to have control over her body. >> reporter: but romney supporters says reproductive rights and othe
, florida, for the third and final debate between president barack obama and former governor mitt romney. when they leave the stage tonight after 90 minutes together, these two men are not expected to see one another again until after the election two weeks from now. it is safe to say neither campaign in either its wildest dreams nor worst fears expected to be in a dead heat with 15 days to go. but that's what our national poll shows. as of tonight, our nbc news national polling has it this way. 47% obama, 47% romney. tonight's topic is foreign affairs. our moderator, bob schieffer of cbs news. last time these two men debated, it was instantly labeled the most contentious event of its kind in the modern political era. a lot of it had to do with body lang age as they circled each other. tonight they'll be seated and thankfully separated by the moderator, all of this happening in a critical battleground state of florida. so without further delay, we'll go now to the moderator, bob schieffer, who will be leading us through tonight's debate. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university

polls put him down by about 3 percentage points, and democrats here figure romney's still got a way to win nationally, even though last night his efforts seemed to get back on track. republicans in denver, mitt romney declared his campaign is rejuvenated. >> we're going to take back the white house. >> reporter: a new mood after many saw a new mitt romney last night. >> let's get back to medicare. the president said that the government can provide the service at lower cost, and without a profit. >> reporter: in control, assertive. presidential. while barack obama kept his eyes and his energy low. >> it's very rare that impressionistically stylistically there's such a clear triumph of one side over the other. >> reporter: at a rally in denver the president admitted he got surprised. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >> reporter: later today at a huge rally in wisconsin, the president charged romney changed what he said on spending and taxes. >> he may do a tap dance and two-step, but if you want to be president, then you owe
in that hall tonight was increased after the last debate, when an energized mitt romney got the better of the president, as mr. obama all but later admitted in an interview. it is cold in the venue again, a mutually agreed-upon temperature of 65, to enforce the post-nixon political adage, never let them see you sweat. tonight the candidates will be seated. it will all be very close. they'll be separated only by our moderator tonight. she is martha raddatz, senior foreign affairs correspondent for abc news, and there's pressure on her as well after all the talk about the role of the moderator in the last debate. there are nine segments planned for in the evening, but we saw last time what happened. here's martha raddatz. >>> good evening and welcome to the first and only vice presidential debate of 2012, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. m martha raddatz of abc news and i am honored to moderate this debate between two men who have dedicated much of their lives to public service of the tonight's debate is divided between domestic and foreign policy issues and i'm going
of reforms that strip away the sclerosis. and i'm surprised that mitt romney isn't running on that sort of broad -- i'm not radical. look at what mitch daniels has done, i want to do it for the federal government. >> it's amazing he's not running on a change washington. he's winning the question, but not by a lot and it's always amayed me. the country is not happy with washington. i want to go back to the demographic yes. what makes ohio different from all the other battleground states and all of the other mathematics from obama campaign. it's the state that demograph demographically don't fit what they're trying to do everything that they're trying to do in every other swing state is about hispanics and gender. not ohio. the demographic group that mitt romney performs best with is white men. the demographic group he's performing poorly in ohio is white men. auto workers in toledo, akron, northwest part of the state. >> i think the reason for that is a, what rachel mentioned, the fight over union rights. a lot of counties that voted for kasich in the election swung overwhelmingly in fav
of 2012. we are in the final three weeks of the campaign now. barack obama and mitt romney took their game up a notch last night in the debate and gave every indication today they will keep up the intensity in the final stretch. steve handelsman has the latest from capitol hill. steve? >> jim, thanks. how did last night play in virginia, for example, ohio, the rest of the battleground states? that's what matters most. pollsters try to figure out the answer, the candidates headed out to try to move those numbers. the day after the debate, they went to swing states, still battling. former governor romney in virginia. >> i just think the american people had expected that the president of the united states would be able to describe what he's going to do in the next four years. he can't. he spent most of his time trying to talk about how my plan won't work. >> his tax plan doesn't add up. his jobs plan doesn't create jobs. his deficit reduction plan adds to the deficit. >> reporter: president obama in iowa. >> mitt romney's trying to sell you a sketchy deal. we are not buying it. >> reporter: p
